    The ICRP Task Group on Dose Calculations has prepared a CD-ROM of dose coefficients for both members of the public and workers. It extends the results given in previous Publications by giving inhalation dose coefficients for ten particle sizes (0.001, 0.003, 0.01, 0.03, 0.1, 0.3, 1, 3, 5, 10 μm AMAD) as well as ingestion coefficients. Effective doses and equivalent doses for all important tissues for a range of integration times (1, 7, 30 days, 1, 5, 10, 20, 30 and 45 years) are given, together with the dose coefficients to age 70 years. The package also contains extensive help files. It is expected that the CD-ROM will be issued by ICRP in 1998 after essential quality assurance checks have been completed.
